Catching-Up-and-My-Favorite-ThingsWOW, it feels like it has been forever since I did anything in the blogging community! While I was on my much needed vacation with my husband last week, I took a short break from doing anything involving a computer. The two of us went to my happy place, the BEACH, not only to celebrate my birthday, but also our 8 year wedding anniversary ❤. We had an amazing time together and had absolutely beautiful weather! It was so great being far away from the stresses of work and be able to just sit back listening to the ocean waves! I honestly find the sight and sounds of the ocean 🌊, while reading a great book to be the best way to relax and refresh!

I am very far behind on reading all of your posts, which I already know are fantastic. its-been-a-whileUnfortunately, I do have to work the weekend so I can’t say I will be able to catch up, but I will still try.

Considering I have been away for almost 2 weeks now, how have y’all been doing? I hope you are feeling well and your month has started off great! October is beautiful and my favorite month, which I am not just saying that because it is the month I was married in. I have always enjoyed the change in weather during October. Normally it isn’t too hot and not that cold, it is just right! Sounds kind of like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, but yet so true! Of course the southern states are not always on the same page with my thought process and it was in the high 90’s ☀ for the first week of October, but thankfully over the weekend the temperatures are going to drop! It is crazy though because when I say the temperatures are going to drop, I mean drop more than 20 degrees in one day!

Like I already stated, my husband and I had a wonderful vacation. Of course it wasn’t long c620x376enough and it was painful to return to work. The insane thing is we didn’t get home until the early morning hours and I had to work that day. I was so exhausted; nothing bothered me at all because my mind was still at the beach and maybe I was half asleep still. Of course things not bothering me only lasted half a day and I will tell you more about this later. My boss is still the same idiot he has always been!

For my birthday we had a lovely dinner at a restaurant that was oceanfront 🌊! vacation and celebrationConsidering we were at the beach during the off season it wasn’t overly crowded, which was great! Thankfully my husband did not tell the waitress it was my birthday, so I didn’t have to deal with the wait staff singing happy birthday to me and embarrassing me. I do not like to be center of attention and would prefer to go unnoticed! 

The day after my birthday we went to another oceanfront restaurant to celebrate our 8 year wedding anniversary ❤! Back to back celebrations were nice and peaceful! It is so hard to believe we have already been married for 8 years ❤, I mean where does the time go? I still remember the day my husband proposed like it was yesterday and that was 9 years ago!

Sunrise at the beachI don’t know about you, but before last week there were times I was awake at sunrise, but never actually watched the sunrise. Standing out on the beach in the early morning hours watching the sun come up was a beautiful sight and pretty powerful! It really is amazing to watch as the sun slowly makes its way up to shine light on us all around the world! To think the sun I watched come up will also be seen on the other side of the world at some point. 

The weather was so clear we were even able to watch the sunset! The sun sets slowly over sunset at the beachthe horizons and it is quite magical, especially near the ocean! Of course I do think everything is magical and hypnotizing when I am at the beach!

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend and you are able to enjoy every moment of it. I will be back to my normal routine next week and maybe even some extra surprises. I want to thank you for stopping by my site today and please know that I always appreciate your comments. Please never forget that no matter how busy I am, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

01Happy Monday y’all! I hope your weekend was spent well and more importantly safe! Unfortunately, the entire world continues to suffer because of the coronavirus. So many innocent people lost their battle with this illness and it is heartbreaking. The majority of the states have issued a stay at home order, but there are still about 8 states without this order. It just so happens the state I live in has not issued a stay at home order and the number of cases and fatalities continues to increase daily.beautiful_butterflies_pink_orange_motivational_postcard-r95e27e5473e64295977e92908166a912_vgbaq_8byvr_540

I am still holding onto the hope that things will balance out and no additional lives will be lost. I have always believed if we can all somehow stand together as a nation, we can have enough love to get through the most traumatic issues.

I am hoping the quote I am sharing with you today will provide you with some motivation b0040249c3ce6ce7e8d6c9f303ae4a68for another week! I think what this quote is saying is powerful because many people do not think before they speak and many of us have been trapped in our house for too many days and could be feeling some frustration! I had to give up something I detest, which is grocery shopping. Now that I not able to grocery shop, I want to because I might be experiencing cabin fever!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great day and you are feeling well. I know I already told y’all that I was going to be sharing information about 4 of the1564503212_8quote awareness’s for April, which I did share the Parkinson’s disease information. Honestly, I started the Child Abuse Awareness, but it was causing too many awful emotions and I had to take a break, I am a little overly emotion about somethings. I promise I will complete it and the other 2 soon!. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Parkinson’s Awareness Month

photo_781.normalApril is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Two years ago, I did a couple of posts about Parkinson’s disease and why it meant so much to me to spread that awareness of this disease. Unfortunately, my stepfather was diagnosed with this disease and has been struggling for several years now. I am writing this to provide information about what this disease is, symptoms a person may experience, treatments available, the five stages to Parkinson, risk factors involved, and the importance of exercise to someone that deals with this disease. I also do dedicate this to my stepfather, Bob Rushing, who I think is a remarkable man and thankful for him to be in my life.

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic neurodegenerative brain disorder that progresses What-is-Parkinsonsslowly. Men are 1.5 times more than women to develop this disease.  It begins with brain cells that are known as neurons, which control movement. As the neurons die or become impaired, the production of dopamine lessens, which causes movement issues. By mid-2020, approximately one million people in the United States will be living with Parkinson’s disease, which is more than the combination of people diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and Lou Gehrig’s disease. To really get the point across, there are about 10 million people worldwide living with this disease. Roughly, 60,000 American’s are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year. I guess one reason why I understand my stepfather is because as you already know I live with parkinsonsMultiple Sclerosis.

The signs and symptoms often start mild and once noticeable begin on one side of the body. The four main motor skills that can be affected are:

  1. Resting tremors are involuntary shaking affecting a limb while at rest. This typically occurs in hand or finger at first.
  2. Slowness of movement, referred to as bradykinesia. This is followed by shuffling gait, reduced facial expressions, and minor fine-motor issues.
  3. Stiffness- abnormally tight or achy muscles that occur in any part of the body and can limit the range of motion.
  4. Postural instability- not being stable on feet, which can cause problems with balance, walking, and turning around. Falls can be a valid concern.slide1

There are a few other early symptoms that could be noticed, which include:

  1. Cramped handwriting
  2. Tremors in hands and feet, especially in one finger
  3. Uncontrollable moving during sleep
  4. Vocal changes, which could mean a lower soft voice or hoarse sounding

The five stages with Parkinson’s disease are as followed-Early-Warning-Signs-of-Parkinsons-Disease

Stage One-

  • Symptoms are mild and often missed
  • Family and friend may notice differences in posture, walking, and facial expressions
  • Tremors and difficulties with movements are typically on one side of the body
  • Medication could be helpful to minimize and reduce symptoms

Stage 2- Considered a moderate form

  • Symptoms such as stiffness, tremors, and trembling are more recognizable
  • Muscle stiffness can cause completing tasks to take longer
  • Challenges with walking can start to occur, but balance isn’t affected
  • Symptoms will be on both sides of the body
  • Progression from stage 1 to stage 2 could take months to years

parkinsonstages2-01-1Stage 3- Middle stage

  • There is a major turning point in the progression
  • Symptoms are typically the same as in Stage 2, but loss of balance is more likely and there is a decrease in reflexes
  • Movements become slower
  • An increase concerns of falling occurs
  • Able to complete tasks, but daily tasks can be significantly affected
  • Medications and Occupational Therapy can help decrease symptomsin_america_001

Stage 4-

  • This stage, independence is what separates Stage 3 from Stage 4
  • An individual has the capability to stand without assistance
  • A walker or another assistive device might be necessary for some movement
  • A person with Parkinson’s disease is not able to live alone due to decreases in movement and reaction time

Stage 5- Most advanced stage-

  • A wheelchair becomes required in this stage
  • Around the clock assistance will be required856830e97d132d978a5cc2203c9f8d1c
  • The stiffness in the legs can cause the legs to freeze when standing, which can potentially cause standing and walking impossible
  • Typically, unable to stand on their own without falling
  • Nearly, 30% of people will experience confusion, hallucinations, and delusions, which can occur during stage 4 and stage 5
  • Up to 75% of people with Parkinson’s disease will develop dementia

With everything we have already gone through regarding this disease, there is still much more to explain. I want to share with you the complications that are in addition to the typical problems a person with this disease may experience. The following are 10 Infographic - Parkinsons Canada - EN(2)complications a person with Parkinson’s could experience, but each of these could potentially be treated:

  • In the later stages, cognitive problems might become an issue and could potentially lead to dementia
  • Behavioral changes such as depression can be experienced in the early stages and can be treated. Other emotional changes such as fear, anxiety, and loss of motivation can also occur
  • Swallowing issues can develop due to an accumulation of saliva as the disease progresses
  • In the later stages, chewing and eating can become a problem with the possibility of choking or poor nutrition
  • Sleeping troubles can occur, which could include waking frequently during the Screen-Shot-2019-10-03-at-8.41.45-PM-copynight, waking up early, or falling asleep during the day
  • Bladder and constipation are common difficulties. An inability to control urine or having a difficult time urinating can create frustrations. Due to a slower digestive tract, a person can become constipated, which only contributes to the aggravation
  • A changes or drop in blood pressure can cause dizziness and lightheadedness
  • May experience issues with being able to smell which makes it challenging to identify odors or the differences between the odors in the air
  • The probability of fatigue and loss of energy, especially later in the day is very likely to happen
  • Some people with Parkinson’s disease may experience pain, either in specific areas unnamedor throughout the entire body

Unfortunately, in 2020 there still isn’t a cure for this disease. Even if only temporary, there are options that could ease or even eliminate symptoms. Drugs that increase dopamine levels in the brain are beneficial. The main medication used for Parkinson is Levodopa, which makes dopamine restore the brain’s diminished supply.

Carbidopa, is commonly taken in addition to Levodopa to help prevent and reduce certain side effects, which include nausea, vomiting, lower blood pressure, and restlessness.parkinson disease drugs - moises dominguez - updated

MAO-6 (Monoamine Oxidase Type B) is an enzyme produced in our body that breaks down numerous chemicals, including dopamine. It also offers benefits for motor symptoms of Parkinson and is useful in early treatments.

COMT inhibitor is a class of Parkinson medications that do not have a direct effect on the symptoms but is utilized to prolong the effects of Levodopa by blocking its metabolism.

Amantadine can be used to prevent and treat the flu. It also is used to treat Parkinson’s symptoms, such as stiffness and shakiness.

Carbidopa-levodopa is a group of substances that block the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) at synapses in the central and peripheral nervous systems.

There are numerous reasons why exercise is significantly crucial for those living with Parkinson’s disease. Researchers discovered that a person with Parkinson, who exercises at least 2 ½ hours weekly, will experience a slower decline. Exercise also assists with maintaining balance, mobility, and being able to continue doing daily routines.

Of course, exercises between each person with Parkinson will differ, but could include b18a982b7214bf9090a36cc4fa4fe7f7things such as intensive sports training, treadmill training without body weight support, resistance training, aerobics, alternative exercises with things like yoga, leg extensions while sitting down, short walks with a friend, loved one, or even your precious dog, cycling indoors or outdoors, and anything else that can be done safely.

An individual with Parkinson’s disease can benefit in two different ways by exercising Symptom Management and slow disease progression.

  1. Symptom Management-
  • Reduces stiffness and improves mobility, posture, balance, and gait
  • Increases oxygen delivery and maintains neurotransmitters keeping the heart, download
  • lungs, and nervous system healthy
  • Reduces symptoms of depression, stress, and anxiety
  1. Slows disease progression-
  • Improving mobility can decrease fall risks
  • Exercises such as running or riding a bike can produce changes in the brain that is caused by aging or Parkinson’s diseasemaxresdefault

Thank y’all for visiting my site today! I hope the information I have provided about Parkinson’s disease was beneficial and gave you a better understanding of this disease. It is possible the reason I can understand my stepfather is because of the challenges I face living with Multiple Sclerosis. I do realize that Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease are different, but the two also have things in common. I can understand his frustrations images (31)and the anger that comes with there not being a cure yet.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, you are staying safe, and you are feeling well! During this tragic time people globally are experiencing, we have to try to remain positive because nothing good will ever come from holding onto negative feelings. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday

331614-Hope-This-Finds-You-Happy-And-Well.-Have-A-Blessed-Friday.-Stay-SafeHappy Friday y’all! I hope you had a good week and really hope you are feeling well and staying safe! Sadly, we are not through the struggles of COVID-19 yet and honestly do not know when things will improve. Even if you are not showing signs of the virus, you can still be carrying it and therefore spreading it to so many others. More states have finally implemented the STAY AT HOME ORDERS and it really should not take losing someone you love ❤ to follow this order. I am of course not saying you should always listen to people in DC because normally I would NEVER do such a thing, but this was something doctors and scientists suggested days or even weeks ago and should be taken e0949b39ef7537d9c55697befc6f080cseriously. Now is not a time to judge anyone, even people in charge that tend to get it all wrong every time, it is about doing what is right for our loved ❤ ones. Way too many people have lost family and friends, loses no one should ever have to face. I will continue to stand by something that I have mentioned numerous times and that is we all need to support one another and join together, maybe not literally, but you know what I am meaning!

butterflyI am hoping the quote I have chosen to be a way of letting go of pain, anger, disappointments, and any other negative emotions you can think of to remind you that we are all going through dark times, but someday our lives will be full of happiness, light, positivity, and good times again. It seems like the beauty in the world is getting difficult to see, but it is still there. We need to do all we can to keep our friends, family, and even those we don’t know inspired. 

I hope you have a great Friday and you are able to enjoy your weekend, safely in the comfort of your home! I am not great at being trapped at home, but I have watched too many interviews of someone who lost someone close to them, whether it be a spouse, child, parent or friend, but their lives 86207a099424494e83441c4a05dad7dd--peace-love-happiness-spreadswere changed forever. No one should ever have to deal with this kind of pain and I wish more than anything they never had to deal with anything so tragic. My thoughts are with all the people that lost someone they love ❤  and really hope there will not be anymore that goes through this pain. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

unnamed (3)Happy Friday eve y’all! I hope you are doing well and staying safe! Times have not changed much since last week and we are all still struggling with the outcome of coronavirus. The increase in numbers from this nasty virus are continuing to rise and the fatalities are as well. It is a sad time for the world and whether something could have been done sooner or not I wish there was something that could be done now. 

I wanted to share a quote with y’all and I hope it will offer you the pick me up needed to get to through the day and to the weekend! When the entire world is struggling with the same thing, we should vsy__on_pinterest__relaall be able to unite, but unfortunately that isn’t happening. I am not going to place blame on anyone, but those that should be held accountable know who they are. Granted those people that should feel the shame do not read my blog or even know I exist, but I do know they exist. I do believe that if we can somehow do what we can to help others, things around the world will change for the better. It is rather frustrating changes won’t be made sooner rather than later, but I guess all good things come to those that wait. It is a crucial time to be understanding and compassionate  to those in greater need and to those that have lost loved ones. My heart beautiful_butterflies_pink_orange_motivational_postcard-r95e27e5473e64295977e92908166a912_vgbaq_8byvr_540does break for anyone that lost someone they loved because of coronavirus.

High sensitivity makes you stronger, not weaker

main-qimg-abb7dd235b660e3e1e5867419d060fb0Throughout your life, how many times have you heard that you are “overly” sensitive and emotional and care too much for others? First of all, this doesn’t make sense to me because I believe in a world that is full of negativity and hatred; we all need more compassion shown. Maybe the “overly” sensitive and caring people are here to combat the ugliness in the world today.

Unfortunately, many times our level of sensitivity and ability to care is viewed as a weakness. I do believe that anyone who can say Emotionally-Sensitive-Quotesanother person cares too much and views that person as overly sensitive does not understand just how the traits they very as a weakness are in fact a sign of vast strength.

It is because you care why you are not able to do what so many others do and turn a blind eye to someone who is suffering. Instead of turning around to walk away, the desire to do all you can to help runs deep within your soul. You will do whatever you can to contribute to alleviating the anguish another has experienced.

highly-sensitiveDue to how effortlessly you care, you have an endless ability to understand the unpredictability of the world we are living in today. You have the inner strength to look beyond your own needs but look toward to needs of another person. You do not have any issues sacrificing if it will help someone else find their way to better and happier days.

The way society is in 2020 is causing many to show little to no respect for another person and only look out for who they view as most important, themselves. You on the other hand always try seeing the good in everyone. You refuse to judge anyone for their flaws and can recognize we are all flawed. By having the ability to understand everyone has their own set of flaws, you can care for everyone despite their flaws and treat them with the respect they deserve.

One issue that gets your blood boiling is when someone in a powerful position abuses too-sensitive-1024x765their power. You will stand up to those behaving in a disrespectful manner and stand up for those that are being mistreated. You feel strongly that people deserve to be treated fairly and with the utmost respect.

While so many people are significantly passive, you are strong enough to fight for what is right. You always have the ability to be proactive solving problems, instead of reactive and fully understand the difference.

Your morals and convictions are powerful enough to not allow for your beliefs to be influenced. You are stubborn almost to a fault but instead, you are completely determined to do the right thing. You hold onto your integrity and remain passionate about your beliefs.unnamed

You do not have any issues showing your emotions in front of people. Like so many fears showing their emotions because they think they will be viewed as weak, you pretty much wear your heart on your sleeve. It takes a stronger person to be comfortable crying rather than a person who tries hiding their feelings.

Personally, I think it is sad that sensitive people are often viewed as weak. Honestly, it is the sensitivity that provides us with an ability to be strong, effective, and prosperous Too-sensitivewhen facing hardships. The traits that make us highly sensitive are the qualities that develop our inner strength. It is so important to not try being less sensitive but to acknowledge these as our strengths.

Somethings that highly sensitive people need to understand is:

  1. Awareness- Most highly sensitive people are very aware of their surroundings and feelings, which help them understand when stressed, overwhelmed, and what is required to be calmer.
  2. Creativity- Our creative adventures provide us with the ability to the way our energies to flow in positive ways.
  3. Empathy is being able to put yourself in someone else’s shows easily. This gives a sense of recognition while understanding human nature.64d884de435829b732b5bcae2d6bd0cb
  4. Appreciation- Highly sensitive people are able to notice details and deeply appreciate the beauty the world has daily. Appreciating life builds our inner strength because we do have so much to be thankful for and also brings a sense of inner calmness, happiness, and joy.
  5. Passion- Even though highly sensitive people tend to be gentle and compassionate, they are also extremely passionate. They often have very strong beliefs regarding their values and strongly believe in certain topics, which helps them to be resilient. Highly sensitive people will continue moving forward regardless of the challenges they may encounter, risk and dangers they could face and even their own internal fears.66dd38238519bc06a28f0b15bf8ba9af

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today! I hope you are enjoying your day, but also staying very safe. I can’t believe it is already April, but I guess time just flies by. I wanted to let y’all know that there four different awareness’s I am going to be writing about, one is Parkinson’s which will be dedicated to my stepfather, two is alcohol awareness as this affects so many, three is stress awareness which directly impacts my life and lastly is child abuse awareness.

I hope the information provided in this post was beneficial for your life. I do look oiupforward to reading your comments on it and promise to respond as quickly as possible. I do feel like y’all are a lot like me and you are highly sensitive people, which is not something to ever feel ashamed of. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

2,000 + Followers

unnamedJuly 17, 2017. This was a very special day and a day that will never be forgotten because it is the day I took a leap of faith into the blogging community and created my first post ever! Year to date, I have shared 622 posts. When I look back over my almost three years of blogging and like many others that are entering the blogging community for the first time felt slightly overwhelmed. I knew very little about creating and maintaining websites, what to write about and what people wanted to read, connecting and building friendships with those I may never meet face-to-face, deciding on a site name, and so much more. The amazing part of this is, there isn’t a right or download (1)wrong way to create a blog and it is all about what you want out of it!

There are so many reasons people want to attempt blogging. Let’s face it putting yourself and your thoughts on any given topic can cause you to feel a little vulnerable because you have no way to know the reactions of another person reading and can only hope what you wrote will sit well. Trusting yourself and believing in your abilities isn’t easy, but this is the perfect way to learn how.

download (2)I went through an extremely deep sea of emotions when I was contemplating whether or not to start my blog. I guess it was a little terrifying because anything I write could be read and then criticized. All I could think of was everyone reading would think what I wrote was awful and if I wrote about Multiple Sclerosis I might be viewed as weak.

Any negative thoughts I had were quickly seen as incorrect. Everyone in this great community is non-judgmental and encouraging. I have never experienced a time when someone had anything negative or rude to say, which is another reason I love what I am doing.

My reasons for wanting to join the blogging community has always been the same and downloadnever wavered. I wanted to be able to raise awareness about Multiple Sclerosis, but also wanted to encourage people to never surrender to any obstacle they faced

I will be the first to say that life can be very challenging. It is easy to want to give up anything things became unbearable. It takes a strong-willed person to go through painful situations one after another, but always picking themselves back up, dust away the pain and then try again.

I am thankful for the fellow blogger who introduced me to WordPress, Catie Beth, who I worked with at a previous job. She has a brilliant blog about fashion, including makeup and hair products and fabulous shopping tips. Catie Beth is an incredibly kind person images (2)and I know you would enjoy her site https://xocatiebeth.com/, once you view it.

I have always loved writing and love the fact I can write about anything I choose on my blog. This has given me the opportunities to building my abilities and knowledge as a writer. I have also introduced me to some of the most compassionate and kind hearted people.

It brings me so much joy to be able to help others when they are going through difficult times in life. It doesn’t need to be an unpredictable illness to make someone’s life complicated because anyone can experience hardships. I has been one of my goals to spread as much positivity as I can and to as many as I can in what can be a very negative world. It is easy to get caught up in the currents of negativity, almost to the point you feel like you are drowning. By doing uplifting quotes three times a week, I hope to be able to provide a life preserve of hope!Spread-The-LOVE-this

When is started my blog almost three years ago, I always had the never-ending support of my husband, mother, and mother in-law. In the beginning my site was mostly about Multiple Sclerosis and what life is like with this illness. Now, I have been able to build my blog into more than solely Multiple Sclerosis. I must admit it is nice to write about things other than the illness I deal with every day of my life. We all deserve a break from our reality at times.

downloadI recently surpassed 2,000 followers around the world and I am very thankful for each and every one of you. It is mind blowing how many friends I have found and look forward to many years of sharing posts and reading yours.

I hope you are doing well today and your week has started off well and you are feeling the best you possibly can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

Motivational Monday Butterfly tealHappy Monday y’all! I hope you were able to enjoy the weekend the best you could. There are so many awful things that continue occurring around the world and it is heartbreaking. Even with all that we are seeing on the news or in our communities, we still need to do the best we can to take care of ourselves and those we care for. This might mean staying at home when it isn’t necessary to go out among people. I can completely understand how difficult it is to be stuck in the house, but it is important to do so. The area I live in is the number of coronavirus is consistently rising and this scares me.

Unfortunately, many areas have a stay at home order. Considering many businesses are 79a18eaf06a2b492231624d8a71d5e94not open with hopes to stop the spread. I know the state I live in all will schools be closed until at least the end of April and it will go past that time if things do not improve. I hope the quote I am sharing with you with be motivating. Of course, I love butterflies, but this quote is beautiful and I hope the meaning will stand out to you. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and when something as amazing as a butterfly starts off as a caterpillar  beautiful_butterflies_pink_orange_motivational_postcard-r95e27e5473e64295977e92908166a912_vgbaq_8byvr_540and then changes into a beautiful butterfly, we all have this type of ability!

I hope you have a wonderful Monday and your week only improves each and everyday! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!
